This unsigned work has been preserved as a photograph in the Künstlerhaus archive, where it is attributed to the artist and identified as Ottokar von Dobrzensky. The portrait is dated here with ca.1910 or even earlier (1900?), which makes the person attribution impossible, because Count Ottokar Dobrzensky was born already in 1871 and in the family otherwise no descendant with name Ottokar exists. It is presumed that the boy is a member of the related families Dobrzensky or Brudermann, who was born ca. 1900-1905.
